Auditions

February Frolics 2018

Our annual dinner theatre event comprising comedy sketches and a short play:

  • Sketch details are still being gathered – but will include small and larger roles – writer/director submissions are still open!
  • Martin Sheldon is starting the coordination of sketches for the Feb Frolics (which is to be held 23 & 24 February).
  • With the short play lasting about fifty minutes we need to have at least thirty minutes of sketches.
  • He already has 2 sketches lasting 5 / 6 minutes. One of the sketches (Donald Trump at the pearly gates) is to provide a running theme interspersed with 4 or 5 other sketches.If you are interested in writing or acting in any sketches please contact me at martin.sheldon14@gmail.com by Thursday 18 January.

The one act play (now in rehearsal) for 2018 will be the French farce “Mixed Doubles” by Georges Feydeau, and directed by Ken Collins, (who made his CDS debut as Dr Astrov in Uncle Vanya).

Mixed Doubles Auditions are now complete.
  • If you missed out then why not see below and look a role (or roles) in the accompanying sketches or for 84 Charing Cross Road in May?

Sketch Performers and Writers are still being sought!

  • Typical sketch lengths are three to six minutes
  • Performers – this is an ideal way to get on stage, with only a moderate commitment of time needed for rehearsals and lines to learn!

About CDS Auditions

CDS is always keen to involve new people both on and off stage.

We are keen to mix up and borrow (or loan!) people with other groups (in our experience this happens anyway) as this enhances productions and skills.  So if you are an established or aspiring actor, or director and want to work with us please get in touch or come meet us at a club night.

All CDS production auditions are open to all (time permitting!), with the director’s choice of casting based on factors including (in no particular order) talent, suitability for the role, suitability alongside other actors, use of new faces, experience and availability.

While we actively avoid using the same old faces from a small clique of insiders, there are lots of opportunities, but we also expect members to get and stay involved in supporting roles both off and on stage.

  • Our annual Feb Frols show has a format and tradition which actively encourages people to try out or develop their directing and acting with support from  more experienced members.
